Watching Joe Biden’s choice to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is a lot like watching one of those Back to the Future movies. On the one hand, the Democrat occupying the White House wants to turn back the clock and revive every failed policy from the past. On the other hand, his pick for ATF babbles and bubbles through the Senate confirmation questions much like his future boss. In other words, nominee David H. Chipman looks about as cognitively tuned in the imposter currently occupying the White House.
During the relatively polite senate hearing, Chipman is asked to answer one simple question again and again. What is his definition of an assault weapon? And he can’t do it.
Given Joe Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee when Congress passed the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act upwards of 25 years ago, it’s no wonder Chipman doesn’t want to give a straight answer.
Needless to say, the no answer-answer didn’t fly with the GOP members at his confirmation hearing. Each time he tried to give a vague answer they grew more and more frustrated. But leave it to Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton to break the will of a guy who could be the most anti-gun head of ATF ever.
When Chipman is finally compelled to tell the truth, his definition of an Assault Weapon will shock you. The man Joe Biden wants to insert in one of the most powerful positions related to guns has every intention of taking yours. Biden pulled off a gun ban 25 years ago and wants to do it again. Watch this rerun before you start living Biden’s past all over again.
